What Is a Good Cut Diamond?

Good cut diamonds have adequate light performance and reflection. They are beautiful and often used in jewelry. This diamond's fire, brilliance, and scintillation make it a great choice for diamond engagement rings.

How Many Diamond Cut Grades Are There?

Not all diamond cuts are the same, so there needed to be a way to distinguish them based on their physical characteristics systematically. While there are various recognized systems for grading the cut quality of a diamond, the one used by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the most internationally recognized. However, it is essential to note that only a round brilliant diamond can receive a grade using the GIA scale.

Other cut grades in the GIA cut grading system besides "good cut" include:


Excellent cut diamonds are the best at reflecting light and have the most brilliance and sparkle of any other diamond. This cut grade is as close as possible to a perfectly cut diamond.

Very Good

Very good cut diamonds are great at reflecting light since they have superior light-reflection capabilities. While a very good cut diamond is not the absolute best diamond cut quality, it is undoubtedly a well-cut diamond and can outshine all diamonds except excellent cut diamonds.


While fair diamonds do manage to reflect an adequate amount of light, their performance lags far behind most other cut grades.


A poorly cut diamond has the worst light performance and lacks sparkle. Poor cut diamonds resemble rough stones more than they do typical diamonds.

What Is the Difference Between a Diamond Shape and a Diamond Cut Grade?

A diamond's cut grade indicates the cut quality and polish a gem cutter provides. It assesses various elements associated with the cut of a diamond, such as the diamond's proportions, weight ratio, and durability.

A diamond shape is pretty straightforward; it describes the physical form of a particular diamond. Examples include oval-shaped and pear-shaped diamonds.

Even fancy shape diamonds whose names include the term "cut," such as an emerald cut or round brilliant cut diamond, still refer to the shape of the diamond rather than the cut grade. For instance, round brilliant diamonds are essentially round diamonds whose facets are explicitly cut to maximize brilliance and fire.

Why Is the Diamond Cut Quality Important?

A diamond's cut quality is one of the 4Cs identified by GIA as crucial to its grading report, with the other attributes being color, clarity, and carat weight.

The cut of a diamond directly affects the diamond's sparkle. Poorly cut diamonds won't look good on any jewelry, even less so on an engagement ring. On the other hand, an excellent cut diamond will have exceptional brilliance and fire.

What Are Fire and Brilliance?

When talking about diamonds, brightness refers to the white light that reflects from a diamond. A diamond's fire consists of flashes of color caused by the scattering of white light.

How Can I Verify a Diamond's Cut?

When you buy a diamond, it is understandable to want to ensure you get your money's worth. Therefore, we have partnered with independent, internationally recognized laboratories such as the International Gemological Institute (IGI) to certify every one of our diamonds.

A Clean Origin diamond will come with a diamond report detailing a laboratory's evaluation of the diamond's attributes, including the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. Furthermore, this report includes a visual "map" of the loose diamond that illustrates any inclusions that were formed during the creation of the diamond.

Lastly, the information in the report contains a unique identification number for your diamond that is also engraved into it - but don't worry, this is a microscopic inscription. Think of it as your diamond's vehicle identification number (VIN).

At Clean Origin, all our diamonds are lab grown and 20-40% less expensive than natural diamonds. This means you can get higher-quality diamonds at a lower price than traditional diamonds.
